TAHLEQUAH, Okla. – Learn more about your cultural heritage at the Cherokee Family Research Center’s genealogy workshop on Saturday, March 21.

Led by an experienced, professional genealogist, the workshop will teach participants how to begin their genealogical research and provide various resources available to assist them.

Educational sessions provide an in-depth look at the history of the Cherokee National Female and Male Seminaries, the US Assimilation and Civilization policy's effect on the Cherokee Nation, and the 13 detachments on the Trail of Tears.

The workshop will take place in the Osiyo Training Room, 17676 S. Muskogee Ave., behind the Cherokee Nation Gift Shop, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., with a 45-minute break for participants to have lunch on their own.

The cost to attend is $50, and registration is limited to 50 people on a first-come, first-served basis. Proceeds from the workshop will support the Cherokee Family Research Center’s annual ancestry conference in the fall.
